given them a majority in the senate. delaware's christine o'donnell, colorado's ken buck, nevada's sharron angle, missouri's todd akin, and indiana's richard mourdock, and then you add in the fact that the rightward leaning gop electorate has also attracted some fringy candidates to the presidential race who led according to the polls at different points. let's take a quick walk down memory lane and revisit these names and faces. donald trump led at one point, michele bachmann led at one point, rick perry, herman cain, newt gingrich, rick santorum. what do they have in common? they were leading in the polls. what's your prescription for this primary problem? >> well, my next endeavor, the nonpaying one, is going to be to head up the republican main street partnership to give comfort and cover to both center right republicans and center left, i guess, democrats to stand up from the fringe groups on the right and left who have the courage to do the right thing. you know, if governor rendell and i were in charge, we would have fixed this thing in about a week and a half, and everybo

say i don't want to be the next guy to lose to christine o'donnell? >> i think you are absolutely right and something i've been concerned about but i will report back from c-pac in marc and let you know because as you know, the conservative political action conference happening every year is a place where rising stars and incoming stars are trotted around the halls and put up on stages and meant to meet and greet and get to know them and make a splash, they meet the media. in fact, last year i met richard mourdock before we knew who he was. ted cruz, too, a full year before the actual election. so i'm really interested to see not just who they bring out, but the kinds of messages that are put up on these stages. and whether the party's going to be exercising some discipline this year because i know that they're using cpac and looking to cpac this year as an opportunity to say, restart, reset, rebrand. >> right. >> i hope that works because we have got a lot to offer if we can do it right. >> i think it's not just so much what they say but also how the audience receives what is sai

the cliff and vote for christine o'donnell or richard murdoch or sharon engel when they had a chance to vote for republicans that would have beaten democratic candidates. if you look at the mistakes we made in the primary process simply because we've had this ideological litmus test over the past, again, two election cycle, we've made harry reid, we have, not democrats, we've made harry reid the majority leader again. we just got to start playing smafrter. >> a better candidate than sharon engel. his polls were terrible. joe, let me say something else. i worked for reagan, okay. reagan was a big tent guy. he was inclusive. in his administration we had moderate republicans, we had conservative republicans, we had supply siders like myself, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. can we go back to reagan's model, can we open up the party a little bit. you know what i'm thinking about particularly. this whole issue about immigration, latino, african-americans, young people, joe the whole party is missing a whole demonstrato graphic in this country? >> no doubt about it. one of my biggest criticisms ab

or sharon ankle or christine o'donnell. republican extremism in the republican process has allowed harry reid to remain majority leader of the u.s. senate. forget about being the conservative party or moderate party as nicolle wallace says, we've got to quit being the stupid party and do what william f. buckley told us to do 30, 40 years ago, that is play to win. you know, find the middle of the electorate and be conservative, but understand what the reality is in the middle of that electorate. and find the most conservative candidate that can win. we haven't done that for a very long time, and i can tell you this, we need to start doing this again right now. another great example, chuck hagel, republicans are against him, a republican. you look at the latest polls that have come out on hagel, americans support him by a 2 to 1 margin. with polls that just came out. it's one more example of how this party is taking such a narrow extreme view on so many issues that we can't see the forest for the trees. we can't make the arguments we need to make, which is that we need to balance the budge

candidates. without christine o'donnell, sharon angle, ken buck,ed to akin and richard mourdock, the party might today control the senate. how careful must be the republican picks be? tell us about the bench. we don't seem to talk about a deep bench for them. >> this might be the most fascinating story, more fascinating than the retirements themselves. in iowa there's a very conservative congressman, steve king, who might be eyeing the senate seat now vacated by tom ma harkin. he would have a great chance of winning a republican primary. in a general election it would be pretty tough. we're also going to see a very tough primary perhaps in georgia. and it will be interesting to see in west virginia whether the establishment republican running ends up getting a primary for the right. i think this is going to be the big dynamic to watch over the next year or so, thomas. >> let's look at massachusetts, though. there's a new poll out for former senator scott brown with an eight-point lead over the democratic party's generic candidate. then a 20-point lead over the democratic senatorial committ

democrats but the fact they use a media farm with ties to the rn c, christine o'donnell, and, i mean, it's very sketchy. i think people want to spend all this money to oppose chuck hagel, that's fine but the fact we don't know who it is is a little disconcerting. >> here is a statement from a friend of mine, chad, president of the human rights campaign, one of the largest gay rights groups. he was conciliatory after hagel apologized for ace-tie gay comments. he said his apology and statement of support for lgbt equality is appreciated and shows just how far as a kubt we've konl from a former conservative senator from nebraska can have a change of heart on lgdt issues. tllt they are. talk about conciliation there, jim. the lgbt community and under the name there of the great organization human rights campaign are accepting him as an ally. let me get back to you. you're a student now as a reporter of media. you have always been a great reporter of media. now how media works into politics. are we seeing more of this subterfuge of this, apparent subterfuge? >> i think this is just the way it

, richard murdoch, christine o'donnell and sharon eng gl, voted for what they saw as ideological purity instead of primary candidates who could win in november. >> if you look at the writings of william f. buckley, what did buckley say? vote for the conservative. the most conservative candidate that has a chance of winning. ba because extremists have taken over the party process in some states, you've had people like murdoch, akin, sharon angle, christine o'donnell. if they listened to william f. buckley they'd control the senate. >> don't you think he would be endorsing ting chuck hagel righ? here is a republican -- >> yes. at the end of his life, william f. buckley said near conservatives were not actually conservatives. their beliefs had no basis in reality. >> this is a great example for the republican party to rally around a moderate republican who will help us redefine foreign policy and get away from the neo cons who are never held accountable for all the mistakes around the war in iraq and afghanistan. neve never. >> you know, harold buckley, william f. buckley asked about the i
